Dear Brothers and Sisters, 

As we begin this second month of 2017, I'm reminded that it is never too early to begin thinking about the 55th Biennial National Convention in Sarasota, FL, taking place between August 13-20, 2017.  As we begin to plan for the convention, I ask that you begin to think about the 2017 Guglielmo Marconi Award.

This award, one of the highest honors given by the Order, is given to an individual who exemplifies OSIA ideals and way of life.  This person does not need to be a member of the Order, but must be nominated by a member.   Click here for more information on eligibility and to download the nomination form.  To view a list of previous honorees, please click here.

All nomination forms and other applicable materials must be received by May 31, 2017.  If you have any questions, please contact Andrea Beach.  All materials must be mailed to:   

   OSIA National Office
   Attn: Andrea Beach
   219 E Street NE
   Washington, D.C. 20002 

I am looking forward to seeing you all at this year's convention!

Daniel J. Longo
OSIA National President
